Mark D. Lakowske


International Motivational Mindset Expert

Hey there!


I'm Mark, and I've been on quite the journey over the past decade, helping folks from all walks of life find their way to their wellness & self-worth. It all started when I decided to shake things up after spending years working in Recreational Therapy at a nursing home.

Back then, I felt a tug for change, and it led me straight to the doors of The Meta Institute. I'll never forget that moment when I walked in for my interview. It was like a lightbulb switched on in my mind, screaming, "This is it!" Funny thing is, I hadn't even planned on being there. It was like fate had a hand in guiding me. Three days later, I was enrolled, diving headfirst into a world of learning and self-discovery.

What set The Meta Institute apart was its approach. We weren't just students; we were both practitioners and clients. That meant experiencing everything we were learning firsthand, which was both challenging and life-changing. After graduating in 2014, I took the plunge into full-time practice, founding Mark D. Lakowske's Healing Artistry Therapies (MDLHAT), and I've never looked back.

But the learning didn't stop there. I kept honing my craft, soaking up knowledge from places like the Hypnosis Motivational Institute, the National Guild of Hypnotists, and the International Hypnosis Federation. Additionally, I received training in the Expert Hypnotherapist System, Hypnotherapy Business Success programs, and The Six-Figure Spirit Business Program. On top of that, I've attended numerous conferences and workshops each year, constantly expanding my knowledge and refining my skills to help pepole.  

Over the years, I've traveled far and wide, consulting and training people globally. One of the highlights? Being invited to teach in a class room on a rooftop in the heart of Melbourne, Australia. While there I hopped over to Sydney, Australia to teach at an institute and then flew to Auckland, New Zealand to bring my classes there. It was a dream come true, sharing skills and techniques with practitioners eager to make a difference.

I'll let you in on a little secret: English class wasn't my forte in school. I was told I wasn't a good writer, but I didn't let that stop me. Despite my grammar struggles, I've penned three books and was hand-picked to contribute to BRAINZ Magazine as an Executive Contributor. Moral of the story? Don't let anyone tell you what you can't do.

When I'm not busy helping others, you'll find me knee-deep in the arts. From theatre to historical costume design, I have a passion for bringing stories to life. I even run a Renaissance Festival and have collaborated with theatres and, believe it or not, even Walt Disney World.

But hey, enough about me. I'm here for you. I'm genuinely excited about the opportunity to work with you, helping you on your journey to feeling better about yourself. Let's team up and make positive changes together!
